Serena Williams in new photo shoot to inspire women
Serena Williams has flashed back to her life before quarantine while being named as the newest global spokesperson for Stuart Weitzman, a career feat that was celebrated with the release of a stunning campaign starring the tennis star, who shot the images before the coronavirus pandemic took hold of the country.
The 38-year-old tennis pro looks every inch the fashion star in the black-and-white photos, which see her showing off her enviable athletic physique in a skin-tight white bodysuit, which is layered with a chic trench coat.
While striking a series of power poses, Serena also accentuates her long legs with a host of different shoe designs, including a pair of white pointed-toe pumps, some cool platform loafers, and glamorous strappy stilettos.
The brand added on Instagram: ‘Inspired by Serena, who herself has demonstrated resilience and courage to overcome obstacles throughout her career, the campaign reinforces the notion of women standing as pillars of hope and optimism for their communities.’
Serena’s campaign is the latest step in Stuart Weitzman’s partnership with non-profit organization Vital Voices Global Partnership, and will spotlight two women leaders who help to ‘lift up women of color who have stepped up to support vulnerable communities in the midst of the coronavirus’.
The tennis star worked with the shoe designer to choose those strong female role models: Sage Ke’alohilani Quiamno, cofounder of Future for Us, and Ashlee Wisdom, the founder of Health in Her Hue.
